What’s new in the DAZ and Poser content in April 2017? Here’s my personal selection from the month’s new releases.
Morphing SciFi Glasses for G3F look like they could made flexible use of across a range of sci-fi and superhero characters, even if everyone is going to say “oh, that X-Men guy!” when they see it.
For something similar but more retro, the Project Zero Goggles for Poser.
Slime Attack for G3F is very unusual, and the slime models would also appear to have possibilities as standalone exports for ‘alien garden’ scenes.
Swamp Mushrooms by 1971s for Poser. Simple, but effective.
AJ Hibernation Hall for Poser.
Liquid Lab for DAZ Studio.
Missing those good ol’ Bryce 3D primitives? DAZ now has a pack of Impossible Objects.
A freebie, an iRay pack of Shimmery Sheer Fabrics suitable for sci-fi.
Aeon Soul’s new Proxy Outfit for Genesis 3 Female is an everyday cyberpunk style. No texture add-on packs yet, but Aeon Soul’s quality sci-fi clothes usually get one or more texture packs fairly swiftly.
The free Milkshake Props for DAZ iRay look like they’re worth a shake.
Classic James Bond-style 1960s Mountain Cable Car with sliding door.
Coflek-gnorg’s Bunker Hill is a large freebie scene for Poser.
Shadow Jester Outfit for Genesis 3 Male looks a bit silly on a standard male, but would fit to a more suitable G3M character.
There’s a new Ancient Celtic Adrian Hair and Beard for G3 Male.
There’s also a charging herd of male fantasy-historical centaurs on the DAZ Store this month, obviously high quality, but way too many content packs to link.
Steampunk and valvepunk:
New on Content Paradise. Meshbox’s old content can often be rather too low-poly since it was meant for old videogames, but their Steampunk Helicopter certainly looks nice and appears to have detailed engines. Beware that their stuff tended to use a single texture atlas, so swopping out the materials can be impossible.
Small town Newspaper Office of the 1910s-1930s, complete with a news-sheet printing press in the basement and a big bundle of period props.
‘Mr. SongBird Remix’ Ken Gilliland has a new creature, Nature’s Wonders Frogs with two common species created with his usual high quality and realistic approach. Certainly the best Poser frog I’ve yet seen, and I have a few in my runtime. His Renderosity Gallery suggests a “Giant Monkey Frog” morph may be forthcoming in volume 2.
AM has a rodent base and a squirrels morph and LAMH hair preset pack for it plus poses.
Dirty Mudyard is an unusual one, and might perhaps also double as part of a small harbour at low tide. The new Frozen Lake Scenery also looks like it could also help with a kitbash of a low-tide harbour scene. The Dirty Mudyard might also be used for the inside of a recent bomb crater that’s been rained on for a few weeks, and which your Res Mortifera monster (see above) rises up from.
Got ducks and dragonflies? The Harpwood Trail – Mallard Pond.
Stonemason also has a new similar water-side setting at Willow Creek.
If you fancy something more steamy there’s a new Vue Jungle Scene.
I also see that the DAZ Store currently has a (mostly) sub-$5 clearance sale on many items, as well. Lots of characters mostly, rather than scenes and props, but on a quick skim-through I spotted:
Gothic Muse has an unusual skirt which may interest makers of steampunk scenes, to make background characters more interesting.
Anu-naki, a sci-fi V4 character by TheAntFarm which I wasn’t previously aware of.
AnimeEyes for V4 and Aiko 4 / Hiro 4, possibly useful for making comics with the Poser 11 comic book mode. On the DAZ forums you can also find a freebie set of Genesis presets for fitting the eyes to Genesis 1 in DAZ Studio. (If you need similar for Genesis 2 see DG Toon Style Eyes for Genesis 2 Female).
Swordist for M4, a big collection of sword and hand poses which fit a set of weapons made by Xurge.
The Moebius-style Space Mother head-dress for V4, which is actually fan-art for the Lotus character in the Warframe videogame. This toons up very nicely, in Poser’s Comic Book Mode with flat lighting.
That’s it, more picks next month.
Carrara 8 is DAZ Studio's official 'big sister' software.
Carrara loads all DAZ and Poser characters and scenes,
and supports LuxRender for top-quality realistic rendering.
